Mystery continues to surround Justice Elizabeth Musoke, one of the judges on the panel of justices set to hear age limit petitions at Mbale High Court.
According to a circular by the Deputy Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny Dollo, some of the justices selected to take up the cases include; Remmy Kasule, Kenneth Kakuru, Cheborion Barishaki and Elizabeth Musoke.
However, a petitioner Male Kiwanuka Mabirizi wants Musoke removed from the panel claiming that she sired children with two cabinet members.
She allegedly has one child with Deputy Attorney Mwesigwa Rukutana and two children with Hillary Onek, Minister for Relief, Disaster Preparedness and Refugees.
According to the petitioner, there is no way Justice Musoke can receive submissions from the father of her child and hear a case in which another father of her two children is involved.
Mabirizi is one of the petitioners challenging the amendment of the Constitution to scrap Article 102(b) that had previously barred Ugandan citizens aged below 35 and above 75 from contesting for presidency.
Other petitioners include; Uganda Law Society (ULS), six opposition MPs led by the Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Winnie Kiiza, city lawyer Male Mabirizi, former presidential candidate, Abed Bwanika and Prosper Businge, a concerned citizen from Western Uganda.
But Rukutana described allegations as false, malicious, unfounded and defamatory.
In a March 29, 2018 letter to the Deputy Chief Justice Owiny Dollo, Rukutana said that while he was not bothered by what he called ‘wild’ allegations, he was sympathetic with Justice Musoke and the disposition of court.
